Why You Need It:
Social media is a powerful tool for building your brand and protecting your online reputation. Social media marketing is an interactive conversation—one that you should help drive. People share information about your company even without your involvement, and their opinions and perceptions, good or bad, accurate or not, can quickly affect your brand’s reputation.
That’s why leveraging social media is so important. You can engage your customers and steer the dialogue to promote and protect your brand. This includes ensuring the responsible use of social media by all of your employees, both on the company clock and their own time.
Engaging your customers and targeting new audiences using social media is no longer optional: it’s a question of why, how, and when. Treefrog can help build your social media presence and drive engagement that will help grow your business.

Social media is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. What social tools you use to engage with your clients, and how you use them, is unique to your business. Social media helps to personify your corporate voice, and it takes a significant investment in time and resources to manage effectively.
Why Get Social?
The reality of social media is that it is constantly there for the world to see. If your social profiles have been left to stagnate, then it makes your company seem disengaged. Social media is also one of the first places that potential clients go to find out more about your business. What impression do you want potential clients to have?
How do you know which platforms are right for your business to use?
How do you create useful content for your audience?
How can you best use social media as a means to expand awareness about your brand, and also collect new potential leads?
Plus, if you have people trying to connect with you via social media, and their messages go unanswered, you could be missing out on opportunities to connect and grow your audience, or be disappointing your existing clients.
Countless conversations happen on the internet every day. Do you know what people are saying about your business? Word of mouth has always been a valuable way to get referrals to your business, and the internet has amplified the potential benefits of a strong and positive reputation. It has also exponentially increased the risks if you have dissatisfied customers.
Treefrog can be your eyes and ears, and even your spokesperson, in social media and other online channels. We can help find out where people are talking about you, what they’re saying, and help you develop a strategic approach to building and maintaining the reputation you’ve worked so hard to establish.
